Now can anyone tell me if the 14-42 pancake is a good lens or to much of a compromise?

I have the 14-42 pancake and love it. Wonderfully small and ideal for a `walk around lens`when out and about casually.I always take it on days out with my partner when taking shots is secondary to enjoying ourselves. Have used it for close up work too- does a great job with flowers and plants. Its never going to be in the same league as the PRO lenses of course but in my opinion it is a `must have.`
